Forgotten God by Francis Chan

I am currently in the middle of reading Forgotten God- Reversing Our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit by Francis Chan. I am really enjoying it.

The chapter I am reading today talks about how God created feelings and that He has emotions Himself. We are not to grieve the Holy Spirit as it says in Isa 63:10 and Eph 4:30. I knew that we were not supposed to, but since reading this, I have found that I do not think about this very much in my day to day life. Francis Chan goes on to say this:

"I believe that if we truly cared about the Holy Spirit's grief, there would be fewer fights, divorces, and splits in our churches. Maybe it's not due to a lack of belief but rather a lack of concern. I pray for the day when believers care about about the Spirit's grief than their own."

What do you think?
